Great White Smile!

Great white sharks have sharply pointed teeth when they are young which work well for grasping fish. When white sharks reach 9-10 feet in legnth, their teeth change to a triangular shape with fine serrations. The new shape is the perfect design for pulling large chunks of flesh from larger prey like seals.
